As a huge fan of “Behind The Scenes” and “Making Of” videos, I’m really excited to share with you Industrial Light & Magic‘s ‘Behind the Magic: The Visual Effects of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ The fact that it has to deal with the making of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ which was probably my second favorite film of 2014 is all the more entertaining! Marvel’s films are always visually pleasing on the eyes and this gives us a great idea on how some of the effects ended up on the big screen.
ILM is one of the most prominent visual effects studios that works in Hollywood today and has built an impressive resume over the years. The video below tells about their work on the second Captain America film and in particular that “The bulk of ILM’s work appears in the film’s third act and consists of the helicarrier’s massive underwater hanger, their ensuing battle, and the helicarriers themselves inside and out, sprawling digital Washington D.C. and Rosslyn environments including the Triskelion building complex on Roosevelt Island, highly detailed digital doubles for Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).”
Not only do we see how the special effects are used in those scenes but also how much work went into creating the scene where we saw Black Widow remove her disguise as Councilwoman Hawley as she reveals herself to Alexander Pierce before attacking.
You can check out the video below:
It may only be three minutes of your time but for those who love how to see these films are made they are three minutes that won’t be wasted! If anything, I personally wish the video was a little longer to give us more details on how the studio works their digital magic.
Do you hope ILM releases more behind the scenes videos from ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ or are you the type who prefers to see the magic on screen and not care how it gets there?
